1. Advanced Running Assessment
In this chapter, Dr. Vagy teaches you joint angle normative values during the running cycle, factors that influence running mechanics, and a movement system model for analyzing and treating running injuries. You will be introduced to concepts of speed of force generation, closed kinetic chain testing, mirroring movement, and cross body assessment. Learn how to integrate these advanced orthopedic assessments with running biomechanics to determine hypothesized impairments. This will enable you to treat the identified impairment and return the patient to running without pain.
